    When someone has the fear of God in him her,you will have access to the secret place of the most high God. But sin is deny you of going to His presence. Just like when you offend your fellow you will be shame of request something from him her your sin will hinder you and even been obstacle.

  • Brianna on Proverbs 14:15 - 9 years ago
    Another example of the Bible being practical for our day. Now this scripture may sound like common sense, but if it was we would have a lot less problems. This pretty much encourages us to plan ahead, consider our steps, examine our path. Young people and even older people seem to have to go through ALL the bumps in,life before they find a comfort spot, mostly due to poor planning.
  • Valerie Norberry VanOrden on Proverbs 14:10 - 9 years ago
    This, to me, means, that when God finally grinds thoroughly and completely in his gristmill, the wicked who have wronged you, you feel peace, joy, and relief. We don 't always see the retribution of God on the wicked who have wronged us, but there is a proverb that says "Don 't laugh when your enemy falls, or God will stay His hand from him ". I believe scripture interprets scrip. and this completes the thought.
  • Jack Woodard on Proverbs 14:12 - 9 years ago
    Only through Jesus can you have eternal life. There are many who reject Jesus as the way, believing in their own human wisdom that their way is also a valid way to please God and possess eternal life Cain 's Religion , but all of these many broad roads will lead to hell the 2nd death
  • Zar on Proverbs 14:4 - 9 years ago
    I think the spiritual meaning of this is the need of people in spreading the word. As Jesus said plenty to harvest and he needs help.
  • Pastor Emmanuel John on Proverbs 14:34 - 9 years ago
    Righteousness denotes godly judgment followed by godly actions or reactions in all matters. It is not just doing things right, but doing the right things in the fear of God, that is, guided by the word of God. Sin is a reproach or degrading any people. It shifts from "nation " to people, as nation implies an entire country and people covers individuals, groups, and associations.

    when ever you sin your inner man conscience will condem you and you will feel shy and unworthy to approach GOD in prayer but whenever you are in the will of GOD and living by GODS standards you feel bold and confident in approaching GOD in prayer

  • Shay on Proverbs 14:7 - 10 years ago
    A foolish person lacks true knowledge. Lips that utter knowledge do not belong to him. The advice is to get away from such a man, and it is wise to stay away from him.
  • Gerald on Proverbs 14:12 - 10 years ago
    For me it means that there's some deeds we do with the thought that it's good but it end up contrasting with the word of God

  • Sylvia C on Proverbs 14 - 10 years ago
    I am a straight to the heart kind of person that loves it when something speaks at all levels of human relationships Proverbs 14 seems random but like many cultures it takes something seemingly obscure and makes it the focus of everything A healthy heart is what I d title this proverb A healthy heart devises good A healthy heart is not rash and pops off at everyone thing A healthy heart builds long lasting intimate relationships A healthy heart in every scenario builds up the human spirit with mercy and truth balanced kindness and maturity Most of all a healthy heart beneficially influences the life of others society and the nation in which it thrives Love it
  • Abiodun Ololade on Proverbs 14 - 10 years ago
    To walk uprightly is to walk blamelessly and certainly with great assurance based on the Word of God Why It is because God s Word is holy and infallible and it has eternal surety upon it Therefore we don t need to guess but simply to trust God and commit continual reliance on His Word Interestingly whoever truly belongs to the LORD can t but be encouraged that God has given His Word that we might feast on it dwell on it and also act on it When we devotedly crave for thirst and hunger for God s Word and also prayerfully maintain intimacy with the Holy Spirit our thought processes utterances and conducts can t but be such that honours God The implication of this is that it is wise to trust God s Word and to act on it it has in built blessings and God s lovingkindness in it and it will surely deliver

    God�s Word is never negotiable, neither is it debatable. As a matter it is right to say that it is addressed to the spiritual man and not to the natural or the carnal man. The truth is, what God�s Word says is what it means! Interestingly, there is what is known as the plain truth of the Scripture, and this may be noticeable on the face pages of the Bible- however it is far and far more than that! That means, God's Word is unfathomable and it is only for he that is willing to invest quality time in reflection, study and the practice of it through the tutorship and guidance of the Holy Spirit. These are words of the immortal and the invisible- hence, if there is a way that seems right to a man-but the end of it is death- that is referring to the natural man or the physical and the carnal man. Why? It is because the natural man is an enemy of God. For his trust is on the arm of the flesh. That means the natural man would always think that the counsel of ungodly is what he should hold on to as his decorum, but discerning that it is not pleasing to God. But the spiritual man normally depends upon and feeds on the dictates of the Holy Writ. The import of this particular Scripture is that it is only the counsel of the LORD that shall stand. Also, even though Jesus said without me you can do nothing, it is far deeper than that. In other words, it is only he that is born of God that overcomes the world- and the is the victory that does that even the God kind of faith that gets his sustenance from the well of the living God. As a matter of fact that should not difficult to understand for the spiritual man, because even though we are in the world, with all its mannerism, yet we are not part of the world. It is also true that whether this planet likes it or not, the Kingdom of this world has become the kingdom of our LORD Jesus Christ- and He is forever dependable
  • Nick on Proverbs 14:12 - 10 years ago
    What the Bible seems to be saying is that man apart from God cannot devise any plan which brings ultimate success. Man's plans apart from God always fail which leads to the death of someone or something. Simply, man is inadequate
    on his own. Jesus said it clearly " apart from me you can do nothing".

    Building your house is a function of wisdom whether you are a man or a woman. As a matter of fact you can't build anything without some measure of wisdom- and when it comes to the issue of houses or, homes, where there are couples, then of a necessity, the Word of God and dependency on it becomes absolutely important. This particular Scripture, Proverbs 14:1, refers to every wise woman, and therefore it has element of prophesy upon it- and hence it is only for he that believeth. ( John 1:12). However, something about this, is that it won�t happen in a day, neither would it happen in a month or, in a year; for it is a journey of life- and hence a marathon; for the just shall live by faith.( Romans 1:16,17). It demands continual obedience to the law of love. The interesting aspect of it is that, God has committed Himself through His Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth to be a shield and a buckler to whosoever dare to trust and honour Him; for great and worthy is He- and His name is holy.

  • Patrick Burchfield on Proverbs 14:12 - 10 years ago
    I'm not sure the bible explains what that way is however it does tell us who they are. Matt. 7:22 gives us a description of there people. They believe beyond a doubt they have done what the Lord wanted but the works they do are not by faith they are by sight. The bible say's faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Heb. 11:1 So you see without faith it is impossible to please God
  • Jashita on Proverbs 14:30 - 10 years ago
    This verse means so much to me.. it seems as if I've been trying to put the words together forever bc this is how I feel if only I came to learn the bible a long time ago I would have been seeked these eloquent words. This verse it's my new way of meditation when I get upset with someone.

    someone who is said to have meaning or expedient not seen from her academic background or science but how someone can control his temper is what is called a wise heart attitude
  • Ronald B. Thomas Jr. on Proverbs 14:14 - 11 years ago
    The Living Bible had me confused. It says the backslider is bored with himself. The good man's life is exciting. Thanks for the info provided. I am no longer confused.
